This lightweight but cozy sweater is perfect for wearing at the beach when the cool ocean breezes lower the temps a few degrees. The neckline can be worn deep at the front or off the shoulder to show off your tan. Because of the stitch construction this garment will torque, causing the faux seems to spiral around the body. This was intentional but if you prefer to have the faux seems at the sides it is easy to twist the garment to where you would like it to sit.
